  1. I agree. Older models already have a track record, and the technology doesn’t change too much from one year to the next.
  2. My list is longer than I initially thought: 1. Take lessons. I have already bought a 3 lesson set with my local instructor and I just need to get started 2. Fix my putting. Way too many 3 putts. 3. Focus on my chipping. I waste at least one or two strokes every time I have to chip onto ( or past, in my case) the green. 4. Tame my 3 and 4 hybrids. I can’t hit them with any confidence and that puts a big hole in my game between 3 wood and 5 iron. 5. Learn to hit my 3 wood off the deck. I love hitting it off the tee and dread having to use it in the fairway. 6. Play at least 1 round of 18 a month. 7. Break 100 consistently. 8. Have fun.
  3. I wouldn’t do it. Even though I don't play tourney gof what would be the point? There’s no one I am trying to impress and I would know it’s not a legitimate distance gain.
  4. If I can straighten out my swing I am guessing pretty much anyone can. For me, I had a major breakthrough since picking up a SKLZ Gold Flex swing trainer. ( similar to an Orange Whip) By using it for a few minutes a day I am learning to focus on my swing TEMPO. It seems to work. I am swinging with the same tempo consistently and am slicing a lot less. This may not be what you need to fix your slice, but it is something to consider.
  5. I played 9 holes today and had zero touch on the greens. Easily could have shaved 5 strokes off my score by 2 putting.
  6. I may be unavailable on 1/27, but another weekend in January is possible for me.
  7. You’re absolutely right Hiway1tele. The guys ahead of us were either in the trees or the next fairway all day. Other than on the doglegs, which I butchered, I was mostly down the middle all day.
  8. I am not quite good enough to lose my membership in this group. But I did shoot a 98 today. Granted the course is only a par 68. But I’ll take any small favor I’m given. I played the silver tees and I noticed that a lot of guys who were hitting a lot worse than me were playing from the blue tees.
  9. Mine too. I lost my first sleeve of Snell Get Sum balls today. The good news is I like the ball.
  10. I live in the OC area, also near Disneyland and I have been surprised that the local courses are NOT crowded. When I played back in the 90’s slow play was the problem, but not this year. It must depend on the tee times you select. In the summer if I go out between 11:00 and 1:30 the morning rush is over and it’s pretty casual.
  11. I’ve been hanging around here too much and caught the gear fever. Just ordered a gap wedge. With everyone advising against a lob wedge for high ‘cappers and using a gap wedge instead I decided to do the same. So I’ll retire my hardly used 60* wedge.
  12. I used my Amazon gift card to order a dozen Snell Get Sum balls.
  13. I just got a great deal from Dick’s on yellow Srixon Chrome Soft balls. I went in there to get a couple dozen at $20.00 a box and found out they only cost $10.78. So I bought their last 3 boxes. Between those and my On Core Avants I should have plenty of balls to lose in 2018.
  14. I generally don’t like to buy used, but brand new year old or more models at a discount. Absolutely.
  15. Also consider Gigagolf.com or Pinemeadow.com. I got most of my clubs through them for well under $500.00 brand new. Their reps are also very helpful.

  17. My experience was almost exactly the same. Several years ago I had it so bad in my left foot that I was afraid it would require surgery. After wearing the stiff insole for a while the pain and stiffnes completely went away.
  18. I just started playing again this year and I am still figuring all of this out. But it appears that the numbers for the white tees are closest to my distances.
  19. I joined recently and didn’t see too many SoCal specific posts. So I created the club to get the ball rolling. Still trying to figure out how it works myself. But welcome to the club! Quite a few folks have joined and then invited others. So it’s growing.
  20. Happy Thanksgiving players! The Golf Channel is showing the documentary “Summer of ‘76 Royal Birkdale” right now. For an old timer like me who wouldn’t even start paying golf for another 10 or 12 years it’s an interesting look back at the time and a golf history lesson as well.
